While I remember it being good, I didn't realize until re-reading it this year how much of an impact it had on me and my attitude and approach in early learning.
This is the book I now loan out most frequently to new homeschoolers who need some practical guidance and reassurance that they CAN homeschool their young children.
("For the Children's Sake" is the book I loan out most frequently for inspiration.)
